Former senator, Randy Brogdon, joined the Pat Campbell Radio Show on Thursday morning, to express his strong support for the legal challenges to the controversial new tax hikes which the legislature is attempting to impose. Listen to the full interview with Richardson, and the resulting comments from Brogdon, here.
"I am very disappointed in Gary [Jones] & Todd [Lamb]
for not jumping on this lawsuit with Gary Richardson.
That's the first thing they should have done."
Brogdon believes the state will 'play dumb' and claim they never intended for the controversial legislation to result in half a billion dollars of new taxes imposed on Oklahomans.
"That tells me right away, that either they believe
that the taxes are okay or they are going to wait
for the court to tell them what they're going to think.
It's a wrong-headed decision on their part."
Oral arguments at the Oklahoma Supreme Court will be on Tuesday, August 8th, beginning at 10am. There are at least 3 separate plaintiffs and multiple separate suits filed.
